A prince who was lost for words A sister who worried far too much A brother who walked differently through the world A girl who had to be seen to be believed Join Krish and Miriam Kandiah on another adventure through 10 retellings of stories from the Bible! While many people with disabilities, differences and disadvantages are often under-valued in our society, under-acknowledged in history and under-represented, Krish and Miriam Kandiah team up again with illustrator Andy Gray to show how God gives people with disabilities a special mention, special honour and very special jobs. Come onboard for the next instalment of Whistlestop Tales! Sometimes we can focus on the stories of miraculous healing in the Bible, but this can make people with disabilities and differences feel like they have nothing to offer the world. But Krish and Miriam introduce us to people in the Bible of all shapes and sizes who go on incredible adventures with God! It's time to remember all the characters in the Bible who do amazing world-changing things - especially those who dare to be different.
'A wonderful and long-overdue book, full of stories from the Bible that shows difference through God's lens.' * Kay Morgan-Gurr * 'A book to help all children (and their grown-ups) know they are loved and treasured just the way they are!' * Revd Kate Bottley * 'This rich and inspiring collection of stories calls each of us to a greater sense of justice, belonging and inclusion.' -- Andy Wolfe, Executive Director of Education, Church of England
